Late Saturday afternoon Col. Robt.
E. Davis, representing the liquor in n
of Alachua county, served notice on
Dr. T. F. Thomas, chairman of the
Board of County Cominissioners, that
on Monday he 'would apply to Judge
Wills at Starke, in the name of S. V.
Duke, against the BoAtrd % County
Commissioners. for Alachud county,
for an injunction restraining the
board from counting the ballots and
declaring the result of the wet and dry
election to be held in this county onl
June 2.
Following are the five grounds upon
which the injunction is asked :
First-That the petition presented
to, filed, considered, and acted upon
by you as the Board of County Com--
missioners upon which you call for said
election were not compared by you as
a board with the registration books of
said county, and the question of ascer-
taining whether or not said petition
contained the signatures of one-fourth
or more of the registered voters of the
said country was not, ascertained by
said board in either its aggregate or
corporate capacity,
Second-For tho reason that the no-
tice ordered by the said Board of
County Commnissioners of Alachua
county to be published at least 80 days
prior to the day' of said election in ono
newspaper of each and every town in
the said county has not been com-
plied with in that such notice huts not
been and will not be published ini a
newspaper published in the town of
Hifgh Springs, in said county, called
the Hornet, for said period, the 80 days
prior to such election.
Third-Blceluso under the law of the
State of Floridat no method is provided
for the registration of nil or any per-
sons who may desire to vote at said
election and the qualifications of voters
at such elections are not prescribed
by the Statutes of this State.
Fourth-lBecause thI instructions is-
sued by said board to the inspectors of
said election they in and by it specify
that only those peracejs who have pnid
theirpoll tax for the years 19(X) and
1901 on or before the second Saturday
in October, 1902, shall be qualified to
.Fifth-Because the form of the bal-
lot prescribed by the said board is con-
trary to law in that both the atllrmia.
tive and negative, towit "For Selling"
and "Agaitirt Solling,'' tare printed
on tho ballot and the said ballots werte
printed for and furtlishled by the said
board to ble used at the said election as
the official ballot there for,

Mr. Watson's joint resolution -pro-
posing an amend mnent of section 10 of
article 0 of the Oonstitution, to'pr-
nut cities or towns to exempt manu-
facttring plants froni taxtltion for a
period not to exceed five years, was
passed by a vote of 49 4o 0.

Gourock, Scotland, May 29.-Sir
Thomas Lipton's flotilla, consisting of
Shamrock III, Shamrock I; the steam
yacht Erin and the ocean tug Cruiser,
whose combined crews number 170
men, sailed from here for Sandy Hook
at 1 o'clock this afternoon.
Greard crowds of people bade thonm

combined with the cheering of the
spectators to give the cup challenger
a great send, off.

Rockland, Mass, May 29.--"I am

the Iron and steel market, The Iron
Age today says:
The @urchases of Besse0u pig by
the UriAted States Steel corporation re-
cently made appear to have been about
50,0610 tons for delivery- during the
third Quarter at $18.501' at furnace,
equivalent to $19.35 Pittsburg, and
about 10,000 to 15,000 tons for May
and June delivery at $19 at furnace.
This is understcod to be on tho basis
of $3 per ton for ,ce at oven. It la
believed that this does not cover the
requirements of the corporation and'
that the addHtional tonnage for the
quarter miiay rise to 40,000 tons. The
corporation is believed- to soef-conataa'
ed as to basic ypig.
In the eastern markets the only
largo transactlon in steel making pig
has been a aal of a lot of 10,000 tons
of basic pig to a plate mill by three,
furnace interests in the Schuylkill and
Lehigh valleys.
So far as foundry iron iv concerned,
buyers and sellers are apparently far
apart. In Chicago the absence of fur-
thor sales by consumers has created a
better feoling. But outside interest
are still showing some anxiety, and

is being done.
The influence of foreign fronona.y
well be dismissed from a serious con-
sideratlon of tVho situation.
In the steel market values continue
steady. One lot of about 6,000 tone
of German steel purchased last sumn
mer by an eastern plant, which has
,not yet started, has been resold, the
material going to Pittsi-mrg.
There has been some talk among
the steel makers of an early meeting
to discuEs the question of prices for
1904 delivery. It is stated that some
of the railroads are getting ready to
place orders running into next year.
A very good tonnage is still coming
up In structural material In spite of
the labor troubles.

The most loathsome and repulsive of all
living things is the serpent, and the vilest and
most degrading of all hinmat diseases is Contag ious Blood Poiso., The,
serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and altiost instantly y the poison passes
through the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, hegiuting with a little
ulcer, soon contaminates every drop of blood .and spreads throughout the
whole system., Painful swellings appear in the groints, a red rash and
copper colored splotches break out on the body, the mouth aind throat
become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fallout; but these symptoms
are mild compared to the wretchedtlngs and suffering that come in the latter
Stages of the disease when it attacks the onics an1d more vital parts of the
body. It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hideoius-
hess,. The deep eating abscesses anld sickeingtit ulcersa iatid tutuiotra, show
the wholo systent is corrupted and poisoned, and ttless relief comes, soon
this serpent disease tightens its coilAs and crushes out the life. The only
antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S. It is. natfO's roasody, coit.

A Simple Trick With Which to 'P1s-
sle Your PiNymaalst.
Boys and girls sometimes amuse.
themselves with what Is called "Invist-
ble ink." a fluid that makes no more
color on paper than water does, but
which becomes visible at once if you
expose it to beat. An Ink of that kind
is a great curiosity to persona who
have never before seen it, but a greater
curiosity still is an ink that may be
quickly made to disappear by rubbing
To make this fluid get a little starch
(Just the cominion klud used by the
laundress) and mix It with water until
it becomes of about the consistency qt
cream. Then to it ad4 a few drops of
tincture of iodine, and It Is ready for
Dip ypur pen into it and write a few
words on ordinary letter paper. The
writing will be of a dark brown cokkt
and will dry very quickly. It will loo1
exactly like brown, ink. and when yoln
tell your friends that you are going to
make the writing dipAtppear salmply by
rubbing your hand or .your handker-
chief over It they will probably look in-
credulous. for it has a permanent ap-
Sperarnce. just as the black Ink of a let-
ter bas.
But rub It, and every trace of the
writing will vanish as quickly as It
your hand had magic to it.

"Look at that, Bobhlie, look at that!"
I heard lhimi shooting. t')tside he was
pointiing a-'iross the itreamt. A land-
slide was r.maring down a gully from
the ver;y top of the Rainbow hills. Itt
Was a stupendous sight. We looked atLI
it silently and then said, both at once,
"I thought an avalanche was sudden."
This thing wiggled like a huge snake
down n sheer 3.000 feet of rock. The
roar s.-mine~d forever to increase. tumt
or smtdko trailed from this thing, and'
enormous lowlders skipped solemnly
from side to side of Its path like peb-
blea Water minlngd with It. and when
It reuacbed 'the terrace it was a bla k
stream. v'iseiis and heavy.
Jiclk bet it wouldn't cross the halt
mile of tiat to the river, but In a mo-
